Unfinished business – EU enlargement and child rights

The report is not a comparative study but is based on information from several sources, primarily the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, NGOs and the EU Commission. The information presented in this report demonstrates that the situation of children and the realisation of their rights is far from satisfactory in Central and Eastern Europe. The time has come for all parties involved to fully realise that the numerous decisions made within the EU have an impact on children, both directly and indirectly and that children are individuals with rights of their own.
